Naomi Heaton

Chief Executive at London Central Portfolio

Naomi Heaton is founder and CEO of LCP. Naomi established LCP in 1990, pioneering the concept of exclusively representing investors seeking to access this alternative, safe-haven asset class. LCP provides a unique one stop service which embraces property search and acquisition, refurbishment and design, letting and rental management, using sophisticated financial modelling to optimise returns. In addition to acting for HNW private clients, Naomi launched the first closed end fund targeting the sector in 2007. Since then, LCP has successfully developed further funds, delivering consistently strong results. Naomi is actively expanding LCP’s presence in this sector due to the exceptional tax benefits its funds offer. Recognising the growing importance of the Islamic finance sector, she brought the first Sharia compliant residential fund to market in the UK in 2011. After graduating from Oxford University, Naomi joined advertising agency Leo Burnett. She was subsequently appointed a main Board Director at Saatchi & Saatchi and Young & Rubicam, advising blue chip, multi-nationals. She writes frequently in the national press and is regularly invited by the BBC and Sky News to comment on property related matters. Naomi actively participates with HMRC and the Treasury in relation to residential property taxation, an increasingly important issue for international investors. Naomi was elected one of Citywealth’s Top 50 CEOs in 2017.
